Tucker’s Mayor and City Council gathered on Monday night for their final October meeting, voting on a pair of land use cases.
The first case was a City-initiated rezoning that will change the zoning of 2825 Mountain Industrial Boulevard. The property, which is currently a Georgia Power substation, goes from from a Medium Density Residential-2 (MR-2) zoning to a Local Commercial (C-1) zoning. The other case involves 2291 Wender Drive, a largely undeveloped property at the back of the Winding Woods neighborhood. The rezoning takes the property from Small Lot Residential (RSM) to Residential Medium Lot-85 (R-85). After holding public hearings, Council voted 6-0 to approve both rezonings. There is no proposed change in use and no proposed development of either property, the rezonings merely follow the recommendations of the City’s Comprehensive Plan.
Council also held a first read on changes to the City’s alcohol ordinance. The new ordinance would move the permissible start time for Sunday alcohol sales from 12:30 p.m. to 11 a.m. The change would only apply to on-premises consumption at places like eateries and wineries. A final vote by Council on the ordinance would only happen if Tucker voters approve the change in a November 6 referendum.
The next scheduled City Council meeting will be Tuesday November 13 at 7 p.m. at the City Hall Annex (4228 First Avenue).
